Chris Yavelow is an award-winning author with 16 books to his credit, including nonfiction, fiction, opera libretti, graphic novels and a long history of self-made,
limited-edition books. He has worked in every aspect of the book business, from typesetting to layout and design; from being an editor, publisher and agent to developing software for writers. From the 1980s to the millenium, Chris established an international reputation as a visionar
y journalist about the future of music and computers.
He will present examples of these aforementioned milestones as discussion points, and conclude with a reading from his forthcoming novel "Tree of Knowledge" (Book 2 in his aptly titled "Tree Trilogy" and sequel to his "Tree of Life").
The goal of the dialogue is to hear each other and learn from each other—to explore what others believe and why, how those beliefs work for them and shape their lives.
We encourage the attendees to review the book in advance to get more from the discussion, and we ask all attendees to:
o enhance dialogue with questions and openness of conversation
o eagerly share their beliefs and why they are meaningful to them personally
o always be respectful of the beliefs shared by others
o never impose their beliefs on others
o expect that they will not be disparaged in any way for their beliefs
